Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is a Jeju volcanic scoria clay mask used to intensively adsorb sebum and purify pores. This pure and rare ingredient formulated from solidified lava caused by volcanic eruptions in Jeju Island adsorbs impurities and sebum that are deeply embedded within skin pores.
Innisfree are known as quite a green company so the box that this mask comes in is 100% recycled. The pot itself is plastic. Overall the packaging feels very earthy which stays in line with the InnisFree brand. I have to say that this 100ml pot is tiny and for £12.90 it makes it quite an expensive face mask. Also the fact that it isn’t in a tube makes it less hygienic.
After cleansing and toning, smooth the mask on the face avoiding the eyes and mouth area. The texture of this mask is so wonderful. It spread like chocolate spread but is very mousse- y so apply this with a make-up brush in order to avoid dipping your fingers in the pot. The mask itself in a light beige colour and feels really nice on the skin. After 15 minutes the mask will dry hard and can be rinsed off with warm water.
If you follow my posts you’ll know that I have an extremely oily T-zone and clogged pores around my nose which leads to whiteheads around that area, so I need a mask that completely sucks all the oil out of my pores. This mask left my skin feeling very clean and balanced but I didn’t see a significant improvement in the whiteheads and clogged pores around my nose. For this reason I wouldn’t recommend this if you’ve got oily skin like mine.
This was a nice clay mask to use but it doesn’t do the job for my oily skin, I much prefer my favourite mask from Lush, furthermore the price means that I won’t be repurchasing it for now. If however you’ve got dry or sensitive skin this may work for you as it is extremely gentle and doesn’t cause any irritation by stripping oils from the skin.
So for those of you who don’t know, Memebox is a South Korean beauty box. It is not a subscription service where you pay a monthly fee and the box is automatically delivered, however you just go onto their website and buy the boxes that you want and it begins delivery on the release date.
Each box contains 4-8 full size products or deluxe samples and costs around $23 (£13.48) each. Some boxes are a little cheaper, some a little more expensive depending on what they have in them. The shipping fees are $6.99 (£4.10) for standard shipping (15-25 business days to deliver). If you order over $75 (£44) worth of boxes you qualify for free express shipping which delivers in 3-7 business days.
Overall the actual value of each box comes in at least around $80 (£47), so it’s a great way of trying out new products which you may never get to try otherwise.
